They're best known for their pioneering dance music, but Daft Punk bonded over the most unlikely of musical influences – US rocker Bruce Springsteen.

Enigmatic 'robots' Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter took in the same show by self styled 'Boss' Springsteen in 1985.

While they didn't know each other at the time, Springsteen's show became a significant footnote in their history when they shared stories about the gig after meeting a few years later.

“Before I knew Guy-Man we both went to the Born in the USA tour,” Bangalter told NME. “We met each other a few years later and realised we were both there.

“I have very vivd memories of that show, mostly because he started his set with Born in the USA. That was his biggest track and I thought he was so self-confident, so bold.

"But the show was super strong, he didn't go downhill. It seemed like such a cool move.”
